Per Via Novum Carnis Dei Regnum Enuntiabitur
Daniel A. Schulke
The Theriomorph, or bestial human, is a magical construct of ancient origin, and is a frequent iconographic feature of European witchcraft. On its surface, we may understand its magical meaning to encompass the magical assumption of the spirit-attributes of the animal guardian. In the context of the Sabbatic Craft Tradition, the theriormorph bears the teaching that the Present Flesh is the sum entity of Aggregate Transcarnation. This may include the impress of animal genii, but also the powers proceeding from the Ancestral Throne of the Dead. This underscores the nature of the Body of Flesh as the Somatic Repository of Spirit-Wisdom, a vast Library of Knowledge which the sorcerer may access via Art. Magical assumption of these forms generates a field of consciousness often described as 'Other' and marked by transmogrifications of the senses into previously unknown vectors of gnosis. The present image is inscribed with a Motto of this Work, and is taken from a forthcoming volume by Mr. Schulke exploring the liminality of the perceived senses and the sorcerous extension of consciousness for the realization of the Magical Sensorium Beyond.
